Landfill Testing Delaware
Landfill testing in Delaware ensures that landfills and disposal facilities are adequately informed about their nearby groundwater tables to take precautions for local ecosystems, water tables, and other vulnerable habitats against contamination of hazardous elements. Landfills receive waste materials from a variety of sources, including domestic and industry, that affect the area’s groundwater, leading to the increased presence of dangerous materials such as microorganisms, organic and inorganic matter, as well as various other contaminants that could be harmful.
Through Suburban Testing Labs’ pretreatment programs, our clients can be equipped with reliable, defensible data that inform key decisions. Ascertaining the exact nature of your landfill groundwater purity levels is a job that we excel at, delivering high-value, detailed reports that outline the metrics of any selected contaminants within the groundwater table. Our aim is total customer satisfaction, providing faster turnaround times for clients with more accurate, comprehensive data reports than our competitors do.
What Is Landfill Testing?
There are several factors to be aware of regarding pollution levels in your landfill, but one of the most pressing aspects is your groundwater. As waste is transported and stored in landfill and waste sites, contaminants seep into its groundwater table, leading to toxic levels of materials that render landfills non-compliant with industry standards for safety and public health.
Most landfills have monitoring wells strategically placed around the perimeter of the area. These wells tap directly into the local groundwater table, providing easy access to non-potable water for ease of sampling. Out field services teams arrive on-site to collect, catalogue, document, store, and transport samples to our environmental testing facility, where our skilled environmental analysts will perform extensive landfill testing, providing insight into whether or not your landfill is polluting the surrounding area.
While at the sample location, our field scientists are also capable of offering on-site analysis for several criteria, including pH, chlorine, dissolved oxygen, temperature, flow rate, and more. We equip our professionals with state-of-the-art tools and technology, enabling fast, accurate results to advise your teams. Thorough examination of landfill groundwater tables provides companies with the means to provide effective treatment to safeguard against further pollution.
Other Analysis Services
There are more potential contaminants that may be present in other aspects of your local ecosystem. Groundwater may be subject to what goes into your landfill, but leachate deserves as much attention for determining whether it’s overtly polluted beyond regulatory standards. Leachate is the result of water generated by natural phenomena, such as weather, that flows down the landfill and picks up contaminants. This water runoff is collected by underground liners and drainage pipes and transported to local treatment plants.
A firm comprehension of what elements are present in leachate helps optimize treatment options for the treatment plants. Providing accurate, reliable data helps develop appropriate measures for preventing potential damage to local ecosystems, water tables, and nearby human settlements. With our responsive reporting services, providing valuable data via EDDs, QC Data Packages, and a number of correspondence options such as email, fax, or hardcopy delivery, landfills can operate at full capacity knowing how to handle their local groundwater tables.
Landfill testing in Delaware provides the means to keep wildlife and civilization safe, healthy, and free of concern regarding potential health hazards in their water supply. If you’re interested in partnering with us, call us at 610-375-TEST or visit our contact page for more information.
